Volunteers provide vital support to SFMOMA while working with staff and visitors in an energizing and inspiring environment. Volunteering is also a great way to get a behind-the-scenes look at a premiere arts institution.

While the museum's building is closed for expansion, from summer 2013 through early 2016, we anticipate that volunteers will be asked to meet at various off-site locations to support SFMOMA programming. We will continue to engage our volunteers throughout the expansion process.

Although the majority of our volunteers work on an on-call basis, we have a limited number of volunteer positions for people who are able to commit to a regular, weekly schedule.

To apply for a volunteer position, or for more information, contact the Volunteer Office at 415.357.4039 or Or download and print the application form (85 KB PDF) and send it to:
